|Class: VULNERABILITY||Family: unix|
The host is installed with linux kernel through 2.6.32-504.12.2.el6 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and through 3.10.0-229.1.2.el7 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, where a regular user could remove xattr permissions on files by using the chown or write system calls. Successful exploitation could allow a local attacker to deny elevated permissions from valid users, services or applications, potentially resulting in a denial of service.
